Hello,

This was a birthday present for my girlfriend; she really wanted a hanging pot rack. The design was in one of my old Woodsmith Shop Magazine. The frame is made of some very nice Pacific coast figured maple and the center grid is made of Cherry. All of the wood used in this project was from trees that were removed by the owner’s request. Milled up on my Woodmizer mill and dried in my solar kiln. Now that’s being green! Thanks for looking, I wish I had a better camera to show the figure in the maple but that will have to wait. Thanks for looking.

Very nice and i’m sure she was happy! I’ve been wanting to make a pot rack for a while. How did you create the matrix? Any idea how much weight it could support?

Chris, The Matrix was made by half lapping a bunch of 1/4” thick pieces together. I still have some in the shop, when I get home I will take a pic of one and post it. The Matrix section in the middle is strong as hell, the only thing that could be the week point is the brackets to the wall. It will hold a lot of weight but I might add some sign chain from the ceiling down to give it move stability. Thanks for the comment.

Looks good. I need to make one to hang from the ceiling in the center of the kitchen. What issue of Woodsmith was the original article? I guess I’ll have to break down and make one of those kerf things I’ve seen so many projects about too.

Chris,

See the picture that I added of some of the left over cuts that I had laying around to do the half lap matrix grid.

Hal,

The issue was vol. 30 issue 177. The plan is very good even though its only a couple of pages.

Thanks again for the comments.
